Re: Obtaining device certificate

It may be that you have to update your DRM component licenses on your PC.,_License,_DRM_Rights.htm or, your Helix components may be damaged, or corrupt. If either of those dont work. You should format the player to delete everything and re-transfer them to your device. If that doesnt resolve it, you might have to contact Rhapsody. Rhapsody Technical Support 866-597-5507 Best of Luck.

Trying to synch my SanDisk MP3 player to Rhapsody

This player is a little goofy. The normal method to synchronize is through Windows Media Player. But if you go for the Rhapsody subscription, you have to also sync the device through Rhapsody.
